  1. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A 13 year old Bunnahabhain as a single cask bottling with 46% vol. At ~ € 73 in January 2020. It is polished / browned with medium viscosity in the glass.
    A dram that takes time and water is not that straightforward.

      The first time I smell it, I notice a flint note, some alcohol and red fruits. Currants and rhubarb emerge, camphor and damp wood. Then a subtle note of licorice. With a few drops of water, it comes to the fore and pushes back the sour fruit. Leather and mahogany are now found when smelling.

      A strong start despite water. Sherry notes with dark fruits, dark chocolate, milk coffee, pepper and spices. Oily, nutty and with a slight bitter almond on the palate.
    • Finish

      With a medium-long finish, the dram with mint notes looks fresh on the palate, some sharpness remains and slight bitterness is shown on the back of the palate. Subtle sweetness at the tip of the tongue.

      Good, lush, slightly alcoholic note, some fruit, dark yellow, I guess a ripening of bourbon, vanilla, malt, some muff. In the blender glass I can not classify the degree very well.

      A bit thin, almost has to think of a bourbon, few percent in any case, slightly bitter, short, not a top malt. There's something more in the blender glass. At least tasty, but not more.

      Oh yeah. I can almost feel it on my tongue when I inhale. Feels really tight and full in the nose
